Re: import get's stuck

We are also starting out with Subversion but have not had the problem you
mention and we have about 5500 files. But,the way I've imported the files
is totally different.

We are strictly Solaris8. No Windblows stuff for us. Also, since the
database needed to be on line before the remote access method has been
determined. So, right now the few of us that are starting out with this
remotely log into the Solaris8 box that is being used for starters.
Therefore everything is done right there on the box.

And because the files have now been imported, when we do have remote
access set up, there won't be any large imports being done.

How does this help you? Well, it lets you know that Subversion will
indeed import a ton of files without freezing, which I did several times
because of a learning curve of some setup that I needed. So, to me that
means something failed in the handshaking that is done via the web
interface and Windblows.

I do not trust XP under any circumstances. As for Linux, are you running
Fedora Core 3? Since you are running on a Unix box, how about running
tcpdump and seeing where the handshaking fails, i.e., did XP send
something and Linux fail to respond or did Linux return something and XP
fail to do the next request?

I have problems with importing.
I do "svn import <myFiles> <URL>".
The size of all files I need to import is about 400MB in about 1100 files.

1) Mostly the import get's stucked somewhere in the middle of its work.
2) Then I have to "svnadmin recover" my repo.
3) And try again.

If I am lucky, the import runs through. But most of the time "I am not
How can this be?

My Workaround is to only import less then 100 files per time. But this is
very annoying...

I use Apache/WebDAV/http (and/or https) on my linux server and TortoiseSVN
(or the svn command line tool) on Windows XP.

What can I do to solve this problem? My co-workers are suspicious about
subversion because of this bug - and I would like to work with SVN in our

Any help welcome
